Ofcourse the 6600GTs better, but if someone is REALLY short on cash and can't afford the 6600GT, then the 9800Pro is the next best choice.

Well if he has an agp card, yes 9800pro, but if he has pci-express 6600. Or if all he has is $100, i'd say spend it on something else or save more money, as a sub $100 is not that good to upgrade if he already has a separate gfx card (i.e not integrated).

Well there has to be someone different on every block and I recommend ATi 9600 128 or 256 meg....smooth, price is right, and no driver issues. nvidia was on top until prices went through the roof and drivers joined them!
